Ingredients 

  • 450 grams, 1 small pack ground meat
  • 1 small onion finely diced
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 2 medium sized potatoes grated
  • 1 medium egg
  • salt, pepper, paprika, oregano
  • avocado oil, or any oil for baking or frying

Instructions 

  • Peel and grate your potatoes and squeeze out all of the water with your hands or in a cheese cloth. Add them to a bowl with the rest of your ingredients and mix everything really well with clean hands.
  • Form your meatballs as big or as small as you like and fry them up once your oil is hot on medium-high.
  • The frying time will depend on how big or small you made them but you can always cut a little piece off the end to see if they’re cooked.
  • Ours usually take 4 to 5 minutes on each side and Enjoy.

Notes

We use ground pork but you can use any ground meat of choice and even make these turkey meatballs if you want to make them healthier. We also like to wet our hands when we form meatballs or burgers so that nothing sticks to them.

Hi! I'm Sneji. Nice to meet you!

I am more commonly known as “The Modern Nonna” on social media where I create easy home cooked meals with a modern twist. I was born and raised in Sofia, Bulgaria and learned how to cook at the best culinary school in the world – my grandma’s kitchen. I lived in Greece on the Island of Crete with my parents for a while and then moved to Toronto, Canada when I was in grade 5. I started to really cook and experiment with food 11 years ago when I was 21 years old. Everything I currently know is a reflection of some part of my life…
